As part of your blood health profile, you will receive a breakdown of the following components of your blood:
Haemoglobin is a protein which helps transport oxygen to your organs through your bloodstream. It also gives red blood cells their colour.
Platelets are cell fragments in your blood which help blood to clot. They are made in our bone marrow along with red and white blood cells, and are also known as thrombocytes.
Mean Cell Haemoglobin (MCH)
Mean Cell Haemoglobin (MCH) is the average amount of haemoglobin in one of your red blood cells. MCH results are sometimes abnormal in case of vitamin or iron deficiency.
Red Blood Cells (RBC)
Your red blood cell count (RBC), also known as an erythrocyte count, measures how many red blood cells you have. Red blood cells contain haemoglobin, which carries oxygen to your body’s tissues.
